Sound Tree Rings is an on-going project that records sound via mobile, save and rearrange the waveforms of sound as spiral time shapes. Its time dimension resembles the spiral tree ring lines of urban sound scape, which remember the sonic moment around us and capture the stories and time behind the moment. A iOS app for this visualization called "Sound Tree Rings" is coming soon in app store.
This video (a excerpt of an original full video) captures different sound in different locations.
